The busiest time for the Membership Secretary will be January when the majority of the Club will be renewing their memberships. At other times of the year it will be busiest when we hold Swimming Club Trials which are usually held on the first Thursday of a Month, except January, August and December. They will also need to turn up occasionally at 6:15pm on a Thursday for the Small Pool classes.

The tasks of the Membership Secretary are
  • Collect and record annual subscriptions
  • Record all members names, addresses, D.O.B etc
  • Issue membership cards to each member
  • Issue each member with a Code of Conduct
  • Issue each member with a personal log book
  • Pass member information to the Registration Secretary
  • Record all payments for subscriptions and pass to the treasurer
  • To follow and promote the ASA Wavepower
Anyone who is interested will not be required to join the committee. They would be entitled to attend Committee Meetings throughout the year.

See Joan Croxall or a committee member if you think you can do the job.
